Description

Awesome face and arete climbing on a striking pillar. The top-out is tricky and exposed. You must turn the corner to the right to keep the grade at 5.9.

Location

Located on the far (climber's) left-side of the Buttress of Cracks. For a map, click here

The guidebook shows this route starting from a ledge high on the left (traversing in to the first bolt); however, it is also possible (and recommended) to start in a 5.7ish crack, directly below the arete.

Protection

3 bolts plus a slung knob keep the route sane. Small to medium gear is needed to build an anchor at the top. Long sligs are needed to top-rope the route (access the top by scrambling up the back of the buttress beginning from the far rights-side of the Buttress of Cracks).
